Tokyo Black is the second brand at YoHo. A robust porter, well balanced between the malt and the hops. The complex chocolate and roast flavours of dark specialty malts are combined with a floral and slightly spiciness from Perle hops.

adasko (1883) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Dark seal color, clear but non-transparent. Medium quality tanned head. Very pleasant aroma, full of dark notes - bitter chocolate, espresso coffee, even a bit of smoky notes. Really nice. Itís definitely a bit over carbonated which make it even more drinkable, which is not the thing Iím looking in porters. Itís watery more than I was hopping it will be. In taste very nice roasted notes, dark coffee with tiny touch of chocolate. A bit of roasted bitterness in the end and in the afterates. Itís very nice in overall but I would say itís like a small porter with itís taste, aroma, bitterness and abv.

HippieFee (325) - - SEP 30, 2015
Draft - Another jet black Porter with no head and very minimal carbonation. Really coats the palate and sticks around for a while in the mouth. Subtle malt and coffee notes on the nose. Good balance of roasted malt (coffee, malt, nuts) and bitterness.
